that gave him more latitude with the conservative base of the party. >> woodruff: speak of boston, and other places, let's hear now from our colleagues-- actually, ray suarez is in chicago. he and margaret warner are at the two presidential campaign headquarters, but, ray, we're going to come to you first. are you in chicago, and that's where president obama is tonight. >> that's right. he's just a few miles away. he's not here yet. and neither are a lot of the senior officials from the campaign. i think they probably want to waito see a little bit more, but illinois senior senator, senator dick durbin is here, and there have been a lot of poll closings, a lot of projections, but so far no surprises. what do you need to see before you can really relax? >> some of the key battled ground states-- florida, virginia, ohio, and of course when we get in the midwest, a little closer to my activity in the last few months for the president, taking a look at wis cons and i know iowa. if we can get the job done in the midwest, and i hope we do glie you're not up thisickle. whn you don't have a race, wh
from new attacks by republicans. later, a brawl in boston. the nets and celtics battle it out in the front row on top of fans. but first, the story that everyone will be talking about this morning at work, at least two people are a lot richer and probably not heading into the office today. sadly, i didn't even have one stinking number. lottery officials say winning tickets for the record $580 million powerball jackpot were sold in arizona and missouri. 160 million tickets were sold yesterday alone. at an astounding rate of 130,000 tickets a minute. the winner takes the cash option, they'll split a cool $380 million. that's $190 million apiece. it's the second largest payout in lotto history. you can be sure that uncle sam is smiling about his cut of the action. the federal tax rate is currently 25%. so it will be $380 million the government gets $95 million off the top. and the winning states not too shabby either. arizona takes 5% at 9$9.5 millin and missouri stakes $7.6 millio. in the end, the two winning ticket holders end up with 25% of that original jackpot. >>> mitt romn
our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
in boston, where bystanders said, you could hear a pin drop, as the networks called the election for president obama. reports last night that governor romney was so confident in his victory, he had only written one speech beforehand, a victory speech. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. [ cheers and applause ] i so wish -- i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. >> reporter: but in the end, it was not even close. obama won even those outstanding battlegrounds, like virginia, nevada. >> i just spoke with governor romney. and we may have battled fiercely. but it's only because we love this country deeply. >> reporter: so, george, the question, now, what now? and president obama has said that he will reach out to republican leaders. he wants to meet with mitt romney. he even last night reached out to romney voters. where are some areas of compromise? perhaps tax reform. perhaps immigration reform. we'll see in the days ahead. george? >> that's right. t
. live look. president obama headquarters in chicago. governor romney in boston. we'll take you there live in a moment. we are getting information on why they vote the way they are. martha maccallum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting wor

, and everybody -- not only at this network, at nbc, abc, cbs, in boston, in austin, all talking about president kerry. that was two hours before the polls closed. >> bob shrum. >> everybody knew that john kerry had won the race. everybody. let me repeat. everybody. two hours before. and then we all remembered what happened in new hampshire when everybody was dancing on hillary clinton's grave. >> oh, my god. >> the day of the new hampshire primary. >> let's look at primary crowds. >> mika and i, we're at a nashua gym and saw hillary up there speaking. >> they were, like, bringing people in from out of state. >> everybody came in from massachusetts. and i said, you know, she deserves a better ending than this. and yet, you never know until americans go into the voting booth and vote. >> well, i recall in new hampshire in february of 2008 being in the lobby of the holiday inn with you and telling you that i had just bumped into lou dellesandrou who was running hillary's campaign. >> and everybody laughed. >> everybody did laugh. that gets to the ultimate magic and mystery that is election day. th
night at the boston convention center. you can see some of the exhaustion show. romney's demeanor hinting at anything? that he somehow thinks he might not get there? >> you're tired of being tired. not just tonight but all the time. >> people overreading body language a little bit. after reports ann romney appeared exhausted at a series. one of mrs. romney's aides wanted to assure nbc news it's about being tired, nothing about her ms acting up. on the trail this in virginia, mitt romney argued that he is the changed candidate this year. >> instead of bridging the divide, he's made it wider. >> if the president were to be re-elected, he would -- it's possible but not likely. if he were to be re-elected, he would be able to work with president in congress. >> the bitterness between the two campaigns is palpable. there are signs that governing will be a huge challenge for the winner. protesters interrupted the president's rally in ohio and at every stop romney seized on this recent comment from the president. >> don't boo, vote. vote. voting's the best revenge. >> president obama ask
, and one in pennsylvania. joined now by peter hamby live at the romney headquarters in boston, massachusetts. peter, these are sort of late additions to the schedule. . >> yeah, and travel is the best indicator of a campaign's thinking. we've known that pennsylvania sort of last-minute gamble/insurance policy for the romney campaign. 96% of the vote is on the table there today, because there isn't really early voting. but the ohio travel jumped out at me and paul ryan is also going to ohio today, john. this signals to me that they are nervous about ohio, as they have been. but they're just a little more nervous in these closing days. but, you know, romney himself, of course, is projecting confidence outwardly. check out this rally last night in new hampshire that pulled 12,000 people. this is what he said. >> we have known many long days and short nights, and now we're close. the door to a brighter future is there. it's open. it's waiting for us. i need your vote. i need your help. walk with me. walk together. tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> there is, john, an air of anxi
. this is your classic fall, raw cold rain. and i guess we're due. boston, you'll see delays from this. the low ceiling certainly. a little bit in the way of wind. rain and low clouds cross parts of philly. behind that is pretty nice. mild across the midsection of the country. across the southwest, we're looking at some rain. it is the season for that as well. here are your temperatures, 41. i mentioned the miserable conditions in new york city. 58 degrees, a bit of a chill in the air in atlanta. los angeles, 80 degrees. boy. >> looks nice, doesn't it, man? >> that's nice. >> seriously, thank you, rob. congratulations. it's great news for you. >> thank you guys. see you in a bit. >> all right. 52 minutes past the hour. coming up, return of the jedi. a navy reservist surprises his little boy star wars style. it's going to bring a tear to your eye. come back. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. so i never missed a beat. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. since ameriprise fin
secretary of defense. howie carr, nice to see you this morning. >> good to see you. >> there is boston guy and a massachusetts guy. is he qualified? certainly a lot of years in the military certainly a lot of years in the senate. is he he qualified. >> i suppose he is. all the old stories. the testimony from 1971 when he he said that some of his fellow soldiers were vietnam from war criminals. i really don't think that he really wants to be secretary of defense. i think i would be the secretary of state. being the secretary of defense, you know, even if he had to go through a bruising confirmation process it's going to be a thankless job in the next few years. there are going to be defense department budget cuts. you have this mess in afghanistan. and these generals are involved in scandals. i think he would rather be secretary of state. >> clearly, i think he is lobbying for that job. one that looks like is going to susan rice. either way it looks like it could open up a spot for scott brown to run there in massachusetts which we won't get into. if kerr is is the secretary of defense. wha

of his top advisers that he's known in boston for more than a decade. they're taking pictures on the stairs. the plane, a sense we're going to give this one last go here on the long strange trip we've been on. interesting hope and nostalgia from the romney camp today. >> it's interesting. nostalgia. is that coupled with a positive sense? a negative sense? sometimes you would rather be looking forward, i would presume, than looking back. >> well, i think it's still a positive thing. remember, this is a guy who's been running for president of the country for the last six years. with most of the same team. all of whom will be happy to get the campaign behind them one way or another. i can tell you on the plane today was ike leavitt, running the transition projects for governor romney. so they're certainly not discounting the possibility he's going to win this thing. >> and i understand as we're looking at a picture of mitt romney and his wife ann there by his side, she was traveling around through the plane and made a stop back there with the media. >> that's right. we haven't se
. but then as they started getting the information into orca, this data mining thing that they had going in boston, it was way off. >> brian: i've always said don't trust models. >> gretchen: we've gone from domino to heating studios to orca? >> steve: it's the name of their computer. they started noticing embossed with orca on election day that while their turnout was good, the other side's turnout was much better. that is why they lost the election. >> gretchen: let's do some other headlines for you now for tuesday. you probably seen his name hundreds of times on your computer screen. but the founder of the world's most famous antivirus company, john mcafee wanted for murder. police in belize want to question him about the shooting death his neighbor. the two had been at odds after fall filed a complaint against mcafe, for firing guns. it's said he was arrested on gun charges. >>> he wanted to blow up the home of former president george w. bush. in a few hours, he could be locked up for the rest of his life. a judge will sentence the saudi man in a texas courtroom today. a jury convicted him in
million worth last year. this place north of boston is more like a lottery lounge. 15 kiosks, plenty of seating and some inspiration. >> this is our latest million dollar winner. >> reporter: this year alone, americans spent $61 billion on lottery are tickets. up 8.7% from 2011. where does all the money go? every state is different, but on average, 58 cents of every dollar goes to prizes. 33 cents are funneled back to state coffers. while most think lotteries fund education, 12 of 44 states use the money solely for that. back in tallahassee, the machines that hold our fate were locked up in a vault. as the sun set on the luckiest place in texas they kept coming. right up until sales stopped just an hour before the big drawing. >> take a look at tonight's numbers. >> reporter: when so many dreams were put to bed. i'm ryan owens in texas. >>> well, for the first time we are hearing from general david petraeus himself about his affair with paula broadwell. petraeus says his wife holly has not kicked him out despite the enormous difficulty he created for her by having the affair. he says
kind of, you know, making that commute to boston area and moving from out of state in might have something to do with that swing. >> sure it does. brian, thanks very much. we'll watch new hampshire and the four electoral votes. >> our next battleground stop is colorado with its nine electoral votes. just like ohio, went for barack obama in 2008 after helping george w. bush win the white house in 2004. cnn's kung la is in colorado. are you getting a sense of who has the upper hand? >> reporter: well, the republicans saying they have the upper hand looking at who's actually voted, cast that vote, the republicans are leading by about 25,000 votes but that's not very much of a gap. what we're seeing here in this location i'm standing in, the early voting as you mentioned, kate, is over. but what people are doing is dropping off early ballots. they're -- these are the mail-in ballots. they can drop them off and murphy's law, no one's here but they can drive up, give their ballot to this gentleman and then he'll take the ballot and drop it in this red box. from here, these ballots then
drawn to their homes, to chicago, to boston, and they end up in the dark of night and manchester, new hampshire, and des moines, iowa, pleading their case. and the emotion just pours out of them. and then everything that we've said for a year or two years, the punditry, the predictions, the who's going to win ohio, the who's going to win florida goes out the window because people go to the polls, they draw the curtain, and then the only place in the world where it happens, they vote, a peaceful transition occurs or power is retained by the president, it's a magical moment we don't pay enough attention to. >> you can hear exactly what mike's talking about in both of their voices last night. mitt romney's voice was strained. he declared his candidacy on june 2nd, 2011, 17 months ago. so it's all been leading up to that. president obama was brought to tears last night, wiped a tear away thinking about his long journey, his last campaign. so mike's right, these guys have poured it all out and now we're here. >> they have been out campaigning almost as long as we're going to be on this set
